  1. In case you're still looking Rob, I'd suggest the PC Specialist website is worth a try. I've used them 3 times now and the menu system allows a lot of options, including the supply of overclocked PC's. The dropdown menus are great for playing around with the config to see what the difference is between the cost of parts. For example, your Amazon linked PC above can be built to order for a very similar price, but pre-overclocked to 4.9. Swap the 2nd HDD for a 2GB SSD for an extra £200 odd etc. Worth a look.

    Orbx P3D 4.4 and NO SEASONS!

    Personally, I think the weather in the UK has far more impact of how the ground looks when flying than the season itself. In terms of hard winter, most years, the vast majority of the UK has zero to minimal snow to the point where it's really not even relevant and actually looks pretty stupid. As for the rest of the year (ignoring a few months where most trees have no leaves), the ground will look pretty similar. Even in the summer season, the colour of fields will differ greatly in real life, depending on rainfall, crops and harvesting/ploughing. I think the autumn/fall colours in the UK look pretty unrealistic; whether with default, FTX Global or FTX UK textures....the country simply doesn't turn brown. If anything, aside from ploughed fields, all other grassland is actually greener in the winter than the summer because it's wetter and therefore not looking burnt due to the sun and lack of rain! So, I'd much prefer real ground all year round combined with better weather/cloud shadows/haze and will snap this up as soon as I can.

    Flying Tigers over San Fran

    Great work as always Steve! Must admit, it was one my favourites too. I'm tempted to get the Maddog X as well.

    Vertx DA-62 News - Released on Dec 14th

    Why do I get the feeling this thread will light up on the 28th?

    REX sale

    Not seen it mentioned here, but I just saw REX have a 50% off sale on.

    Any news on Vertx DA62

    Not to mention that the old RealAir stuff was about as close to bug free as you can get, and so needed little support anyway! This thread boils down to "well respected chap with a great history of releasing high quality add-ons, mentioned in a press release on 28th September that he hopes to release the aircraft in the “next few weeks”. I guess those (wrongly) suggesting things like broken promises must've been absolutely p155ing their pants waiting for something like the Aerosoft CRJ 😂

    Any news on Vertx DA62

    I can just imagine how cool that Boeing would be, updated to todays standards (yes I'm biased), but it sadly will remain imaginary. I've tried re-booting the development since FSX came along, but never managed to get the right people involved at the right times. For me at least, the solution is to use something like the MadDog and pretend there's another engine back there😉

    While we wait, I'm enjoying the entertainment 😂

    How much RAM do you have for P3D v4

    Probably the biggest reason to get 32GB? A very reasonable decision I think.
  11. Watching with interest as I'm in a similar position Ray. I was looking at Chillblast too, but the above seems to be something they'll build to spec, as opposed to using the preset options on the website. It'll be interesting to know the price, once you've nailed the spec; it might save me time to go to them instead PCSpecialist again as the only change I'd make would be to go for the 1080, not to mention they don't seem to offer the option for a 8086 either.

    Student pilot boarded plane at Orlando Melbourne

    A bit of journalistic license with this story I think. Apparently he is a part-time aviation management student that already has a commercial license, so yes, a pilot and a student but not a student pilot. Also, the Airbus was hangered with the nose to the back and chocked too. And he left his car parked at the terminal with the engine running. Can't help thinking that a drink or two will turn out to be involved here 😂

    Aerosoft A320/A321 Professional - Delayed again

    For some reason, I didn't expect this kind of thing from you Alan. I can't imagine any company communicating better than Aerosoft.
  14. I can't help thinking this is going to be hard to resist getting, especially at that price.

    Does anyone remember?

    You're not mistaken. I was so pleased with the way the artwork for the cockpit was coming along too, but, as I said above, the real world got in the way for me, and the others that were going to be involved.
